I'm One: 21st-Century Mods Paperback – February 25, 2013. I love this book, but I guess I'm a bit biased. Horst is a wonderful photographer, and really got the feel of a night out with the New Untouchables.

I'm One: 21st-Century Mods Paperback – February 25, 2013. by. Horst A. Friedrichs (Author). Find all the books, read about the author, and more. London has the best 60's scene ever. So many of these photos bring back the best memories. There are a few people in the book who were photographed in the 90s, and are now a bit older, but the majority of the people in the book are under 35. Anyway, who cares how old everyone is?

by Horst A. Friedrichs. Publisher's Description. The Mod subculture has always been about working-class aspiration with an obsessive attention to style and detail-the right haircuts, shoes, records, shirts, wheels-to live and look impeccably neat, no matter what one’s background. From Alfie, The Beatles and The Who, to Paul Weller, Duffy, and The Rifles, the smart and urbane look is revived again and again as each generation rediscovers what it means to be a Mod. Today across Britain the lifestyle is still going strong, and it is lovingly recorded here by photographer Horst Friedrichs.

Munich, berlin, london, new york. What are twenty-fi rst century Mods? Lovers of all things Mod, Sixties and beyond; those who can still chime with a genuine, contemporary echo of the past amid today’s ill-defi ned Youthquake.

In this book, the photographer of I'm One: 21st Century Mods turns his probing lens to the world of Rockers. With their tattoos, leather jackets, slicked-back hair, and beloved British motorbikes-BSAs, Triumphs, Nortons, and Royal Enfields-Rockers are the nemesis and antithesis of the fastidiously groomed Mods. Elvis, James Dean, and Marlon Brando made rocker style synonymous with rebellion, sparking a global cult

This rare collection of photographs provides a sensitive portrayal of Britain's Mod community from the past decade and a unique insight into the diversity of the contemporary Mod scene. With an introduction by Rob Bailey and an afterword by Paolo Hewitt, these pictures could be right out of 1966 in the way they capture the essence of being Mod.

I hate to slam a book, especially one about a subject matter near and dear to my heart. Unfortunately, it has to be done here. Let's quickly move on beyond the initial dissappointment that there is practically zero prose to set up any context, subject matter or proposed relevance of the photos included in this book. After all, I own and love other music genre based books that are majority photo-only, so that in and of itself isn't the deal breaker here.

The problem is with the photos and the majority of their subjects themselves. I've never fealt so old in my life while looking at these people. No offense to those in the book but it's filled with pictures of old geezers and geezettes with very few photos of anyone that was under 30 when their picture was taken. In fact, some of the people photographed come off as original mods from the mid/late 60s that are still living the lifestyle. A photo book about that subject would be just fine but please be honest and call it just that, rather than putting one or two young mods on the front and back covers in order to "sexify" this book. Besides the misleading packaging, nothing about this book comes off as "21st Century."

I'm no spring chicken myself but this book simply doesn't make mod culture look or feel relevant or "cool"...and isn't that really the whole point.

I love this book, but I guess I'm a bit biased. Horst is a wonderful photographer, and really got the feel of a night out with the New Untouchables. London has the best 60's scene ever. So many of these photos bring back the best memories. The other person who reviewed it hasn't a clue what they're talking about. There are a few people in the book who were photographed in the 90s, and are now a bit older, but the majority of the people in the book are under 35. Anyway, who cares how old everyone is? This book, for me, tells me the story of my 20s. The New Untouchables showed me the best days of my life. 100 stars for this book. Perfect!
